Hello little web makers! How are we all this dreary wet morning?

I cannot believe where the time has gone! July literally just flew by and it seems August is flying by too! I’ll be back to Sheffield before I know it! I am feel particularly motivated at the moment! I know first year doesn’t exactly count BUT it kind of does in the world of law! I’m feeling motivated and inspired to achieve, I really really want to pursue a career in law and once I’ve set my heart on something I’m a very stubborn individual and tend to get what I want (even if I get knocked back time and time again) I’m a pretty resilient girl who likes to bounce back, long may my bouncing ability continue! I cannot believe that this time next year I have to start the daunting process of applying for training contracts and other legal type jobs such as a paralegal! It’s crazy but also kind of exciting! I think I’m actually now ready to grow up and do adult things and have a real paying job! I worked hard to get here and nothing is going to get in my way! I’m going to write to all my local law firms and see if they will offer any form of work experience, I also need to start thinking about where I want to do the LPC and what kind of firms I want to approach and where I ultimately want to live! It’s scary but it’s exciting! I think I’m ready to take this step! I have no intention to return to the sleepy island of Guernsey, my heart is in the UK and that’s where I am going to stay! I’m well aware I’m going to have to work from the very bottom to achieve my ultimate dreams (but everyone starts at the bottom and works their way up!) I’m not in denial. This journey is going to most likely be long and hard but I am going to throw my all into this year, I’m going to take every little opportunity that comes my way, I’m going to be proactive, I’m going to use my determination to achieve my dreams and I’m going to try my darn hardest to do as well as I possibly can! So watch this space! I’m more than likely going to be blogging my way through the ups and downs of law school & applications to jobs, LPC and a whole lot more! It’s going to be tough but it sure will be worth it! I’m thankful for this opportunity to achieve my dreams!

What are you thankful for and what do you hope to achieve?

Love C xo
